The power just flickered, so it's time to make sure I get a quick update up in case the power goes out. It was a much better day than yesterday in almost every way, starting from actually being able to sleep last night (the chlorine smell persists in the bathroom, but it's actually kind of pleasant now that it's not strong enough to make me cough). The only bad part is that most of the fixes that we're waiting for before we can make a build are still in progress, so we're going to have to delay the big test at least another day. One of those problems was really weird, though - it looks like a correct LUKS full-disk encryption setup, but for some reason, the passphrase we programmed in didn't work. That caused us to lose a lot of time on one of the efforts. Another got stalled by hardware problems (and the guy who's working that one will be out all next week - he plans to work over the weekend and hand off any remaining work before he leaves), and another seems to be having problems due to an inferior hard drive or something. I believe the fourth one got finished, at least - they were just wrapping it up when I left.

Not that it's particularly early, but if I can finish reading my webcomics for the day, I think I'll just turn in again and see how the weekend goes. Might have an opportunity to join some old friends (parents of a friend, I suppose, but still people I've known) for dinner if I feel like heading to Indianapolis again. Probably not, since I've got stuff to do here, but the option's there.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
